can we expect a crack for the new os 10
I have heard of these types of unethical practices. Hope there isnt one for BB10. After all we want more developers to come to BB10. If their apps gets stolen then why would they come?

How convenient it may be for you as a user, you should think about what it does for app developers. The apps that you want to "crack" are developed by someone who has invested a lot of time and creativity in the app. Downloading a cracked app and never buying it is like flippin' the bird in the developer's face. There are lots of "lite" or "free" versions of apps that allow you to see how the app works, so you can buy it if you like it. Please appreciate the apps, because if everyone would stop buying apps, you might not see them back in the future.Phones BlackBerry Z10 Ferrari Red Limited Edition (In the closet with a micro sim adapter stuck in it) & BlackBerry Q10 White (In use by nephew) & BlackBerry Z30 Black (in hibernation mode) & Blackberry Q5 Black (spreading BB10 awesomeness @ best friend) & BlackBerry Passport Black (daily driver) & BlackBerry Classic Black (ordered, in stock 13th of January)

Titles don't work. Why do I bother?
Ethics aside, there is a difference in design between a company that does not care about security (Apple, Android(Google)) and a company that does (Microsoft, RIM). Developers for iOS and Android understand there apps are subject to theft but accept that. Devs on BB and MS expect to be paid.

Having worked in software, I've seen the layoffs that can happen when sales don't meet expectations even though the userbase remains high due to illegal piracy--------------------------------
Not sure what's worse - irrational fanboys who get hostile at any negative suggestion ... or the people who've moved onto another platform but feel the need to come back here because they get off on "educating idiots".

I am more than willing to pay for my apps, even at a premium to similar ones found on other platforms as long as they work well. That is a sure-fire way to keep the developer community churning out new apps. I'm lucky in that I have a well-paying job and don't have to think twice about paying 1.99 or 5.99 for an app. Heck, I lose much more than that in a round of golf!

I get where people are coming from pirating ridiculously priced software like photoshop for $800+ , but cell phone apps.. really? So many are already free.. the vast majority outside that are 1.99 - 5.99 and I think the most expensive one I ever bought was 19.99.. ohh noo.. how will I ever survive???
